Abstract
Analytical Archaeometry describes this interesting and challenging field of research - on the border between natural science (chemistry, spectroscopy, biology, geology) and humanities (arhaeology, (art-) history, conservation sciences). The book clearly fills the gap between these two scientific areas whilst focussing on the analytical aspects of the research field. The first part of the book considers the main analytical techniques used in this research field. The second part expands from the different types of materials that are usually encountered, and the final part is organised around a series of typical research questions. The book is not only focussed on archaeological materials, but also accessible to a broader audience, like professionals in museums. Overall the book is clearly structured and gives insight into different approaches to the study of analytical archaeometry providing extensive discussion on a wide range of techniques, materials, questions and applications. Due to the advances in analytical instrumentation and applications in this field, it is important to have all this information merged together in one place. By working with specialists in the different disciplines, who have written a chapter in their own speciality, the reader is provided with the latest progress in this research field. Academics as well as professionals working in archaeology, art history, museum labs and conservation science will find this an invaluable reference source.
